I know many photographers like to create their own custom holiday cards or birth announcements for their clients, but not me. See, I'm not a designer at all. I've always said that I leave card design to the experts because I want your holiday cards to look incredible. So for a long time now I've been referring my clients a handful of really quality holiday card vendors (see below for links to their websites). I also took many weeks over the summer of 2015 to create a Holiday Card Vendor Roundup for you guys - I compare pricing, papers and styles on this blog post here. But this page here is the one to visit when you're ready to get going. I'll update it with coupon codes as they become available to me throughout the season.


The Basics:

High res JPGs (digital negatives of your photos) are available. You can order all the JPGs from your shoot for $650, or individual JPGs at a rate of $75 for the first JPG and $50 for each additional JPG. Or if you're also ordering prints and/or photobooks, you can order your digital files as part of your order online through my order form by checking the JPG box next to the images you'd like. But to just pay for just a JPG or JPGs, click on this link to use your Mastercard or VISA, and note the image number (or numbers) in the comments field. I will email you a link to download your JPG or JPGs in both color and b&w two business days (and often much sooner) after I receive payment.

More details & ways to save:

If you want to work with Tiny Prints, Minted or Mango Ink (my favorite card vendors), the "additional JPG" pricing doesn't apply. That means if you work with one of these companies, you can put as many photos on your card as you'd like and just pay me $75 for the use of all of them. With these vendors I send JPGs directly to them, so in the comments field of the payment page to let me know which photos I should send to whom. Also let me know if you'd like one of the photos sent directly to you in high-res.



Tiny Prints specifics: Yay, TinyPrints is offering my clients 40% off their entire order and 10 free custom envelopes for the 2016 holiday season. Visit my BBP Tiny Prints storefront to get the code. Additionally, in case it's helpful, they have one page where all their active coupons are posted. Cool, eh? It's here. If you're using Tiny Prints, you first choose the photos from your photoshoot you might want to use in your card, BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER. You email me the numbers of the images you're thinking of using and I'll upload them into the Tiny Prints system. Then after you get the email from me that your photos are uploaded, you can design your card using those photos and place your order with them.



Minted specifics: They too have a page where all their active coupons are posted. It's here. Additionally, in past years they've offered me a discount code for use by my clients. They've changed the way they do discounts this year, and now are only offering my clients WHO HAVEN'T DONE CARDS WITH MINTED BEFORE a 20% off coupon. Email me and I can send that discount code to you. Otherwise, if you've done your cards with Minted in the past, they are suggesting you pay $50 to be a member of their "Minted More" program, where you get 30% off your cards and all sorts of other stuff. Hmmm. Somehow this doesn't seem worth it to me - but that's neither here nor there. If you'd like to order cards with them, choose any design from the site, and customize the colors, fonts, and message. Please make a note that I will be uploading your photo(s) in the [Add special design instructions here] field. Proceed to the checkout and enter your personal and payment information, review the order, and submit the order. Once the order is placed, please email me to ask that I upload specific image numbers and remember to give me your order number. If you have placed an order for a card with multiple photos, please let me know the order of the photos so I can upload them the right way. When the digital proof is ready for review, Minted will notify you via email.




Mango Ink specifics: This is a cool option - all year round, anytime, Mango Ink offers my clients 35% off their entire order (when you spend over $120) if you use this coupon code: "bostonbaby". Just place your order with them first, and then email me your order number and let me know which image numbers I should send to Ryan and Heidi.
